Limerick Marathon. GCH had a number of athletes competing over various distances at last weekends’ Limerick series of races: 3 athletes in the marathon, 12 athletes in the half marathon and 5 athletes in the 6 mile race.
Well done to the GCH athletes who competed at the AAI National 10k Championships on Sunday last. The Championships were held over a welcome improved course in the Phoenix Park in conjunction with the Great Ireland Run. Conditions on the day were cold and blustery for the athletes with many clubs fielding strong competitive teams.

European Indoors. Cillin Greene of GCH competed in the 400m on the Irish team at the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow last weekend. Greene was the first Irish athlete in action, but he was most unlucky as he failed to finish his 400m heat after a mid-race collision. The championships were a great experience for the talented Greene, who will no doubt focus next on his outdoor season and look to further lower his personal bests.
Congratulations go to Cillin Greene on his selection to the Irish team for the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow in March. This follows his superb win and qualifying time achieved in the 400m at the National Indoor Championships in Dublin on Sunday. The European Championships take place from March 1st to 3rd, and Greene’s first race will be the 400m heats on Friday morning March 1st.
National Senior Indoor Championships
It was a hugely successful and momentous weekend for Galway City Harriers’ athletes at the National Senior Indoor Championships held in Abbottstown, Dublin last weekend. A haul of four National medals, two of them gold: Cillin Greene winning a fantastic maiden National Senior title, and Sean Breathnach adding to his haul of over twenty National Senior titles.
NATIONAL Senior Indoor Championships take place on the 16th and 17th February in Abbottstown. Closing date is Sunday 10th February. AAI Link to schedule here: https://www.athleticsireland.ie/downloads/events-timetable/Senior_Indoor...
